P-nitrophenol biodegradation by aerobic microbial granules.


Mixed microbial consortia in the form of aerobic microbial granules (AMG) capable of xenobiotic degradation can be developed from activated sludge or by adaptation of microbial granules pre-grown on labile carbon sources. Both of these approaches were investigated for the cultivation of AMG capable of p-nitrophenol (PNP) biodegradation. Attempts to… (More)
